embracing the dichotomy of understated luxury that epitomizes the Napa Valley, Hunter Gatherer is essentially a modern, curated "general store."
owner and founder, Colby Hallen had fallen in love with the Napa Valley and after spending a few years in both sustainable and interior design in the area she noticed a significant void in the retail space. Hallen set out to create a new kind of retail experience, her hope was that other wine country locals were also sensing this void and thus the “modern general store” came to life.
after a successful pop up in the city of Napa, Hallen knew it was time to expand her vision and find a forever home for Hunter Gatherer. in november of 2016, we opened the doors of our flagship store in Yountville, Ca.
our aim began and continues to be to fill that void in the Napa Valley for luxury artisanal goods from apothecary to fashion, home and beyond. we believe that the items we use in our daily life should be as beautiful as they are functional and feel that that same spirit not only resonates with others throughout the valley but is an inate component of the Napa Valley lifestyle.
while our primary focus is catering to the discerning Napa Valley local, we hope to also become a destination for the savvy traveler, sharing the aesthetic and ethos of the lifestyle we love so much!
as we have grown and expanded it has remained extremely important to Hallen and our growing team that we stay true to our mission- to seek out the creators, the makers, the dreamers - and share their story and their goods with you. we love working with artisans across the globe, finding awesome goods that are made in the USA and are especially smitten with brands who give back.
in a world where things seem all too replaceable, disposable and dare we say “cheap,” we value quality over quantity and strive to be the retailer that provides classic, timeless, quality pieces that we like to call “essentials for the good life.”
we look forward to welcoming you into the world of Hunter Gatherer at our flagship store in Yountville!
